I had this when going up to 18s I had them at around 35 but went up to 40 as it dident seam enough and am around 38 now. From searching around most people seams to say it's driver preference. You can put more air in to make the rider harder and less to make it softer. I would just experiment or pop in a local tier shop most do free ailment checks so go for one and ask at the same time.

I have them at 34 rear and 36 front now.think the problem was that i was use to seeing the 50 tyre wall so when i was looking at these with the 40 tyre wall it made me thing they look flat.all good now thanks for all the input guys [emoji2]

I run at 34 all round, feels good and still stable in the wet, but the back end can feel more lively in less than optimal conditions. I don't mean drift lively, just the odd twitch if I misjudge throttle position
